Written in Australia over ANZAC weekend 2008, this work pays homage to the last moments of my Great Uncle, Corporal HD Bridge in the muddy wastelands of WW1 France. The ending is deliberately unresolved, asking the question posed in the last line of text. The English words are my own, and were translated into Latin with the assistance of Professor Constance Mews of Monash University, Melbourne.
